NET grants have provided needed recycling equipment to Crossroads Mission Avenue

Nebraska Recycling Council (NRC) has funded several recycling equipment purchases for Crossroads Mission Avenue over the years through the Nebraska Environmental Trust (NET). Donation bins are placed in convenient locations throughout the Kearney, Grand Island, and Hastings communities, where clean, no-longer-used clothing, blankets, and towels can be dropped off.

Crossroads’ mission statement is “Bringing Glory to God through the Helping of People”. Our recycling program brings glory to God and assists the communities we serve by using our resources wisely and helping to reduce the pollution caused by waste. Our recycling program helps our guests by providing job training and community service opportunities. It helps the people in our communities by educating them about the value of recycling and gives them the opportunity to participate in a program that benefits the environment.

Most people are eager to see their belongings go somewhere they are needed rather than throwing them away. As our society moves further into an eco-conscious lifestyle, it’s exciting for a community to learn about innovative ways they can minimize their belongings and help the environment at the same time!
